Pest Control Trends

Pest Control and how it is changing the future

There is no question that the majority of people truly dislikes bugs of any nature inside their homes or lurking on their properties.

In the early days there wasn’t much that could be done chemically to rid homes of these pest. Borax was the leading method as well as mothballs.

Over time pesticides were invented primarily for farmers to help aid in producing bigger crops. Along the way as a side effect of this mass chemical spread it was realized that it was harming water sources, killing good bugs, animals and tainting the food we eat.

When it comes down to dollars and profit it means not much was done to curb the practice. Plus there was very little alternatives on the market.

Eventually smaller pest control companies began forming and serving local residential homes. Now the danger of contamination was right in our homes. This business became a booming industry. Naturally since no one likes bugs in their homes.

Another side effect was bugs resistance to the pesticide. Over several evolutionary cycles they were immune to the chemicals aimed at killing them.

With the onset of internet many began to be able to do their own pest control. Bait traps or even home made baits that would deter the small invaders.

Today we are now seeing a shift with better education and awareness of the harmful effects of pesticides.

Green solutions are now in big supply. Finding better alternatives to detering bugs from wanting to reside in your homes.

It will be interesting to see what the future holds. The bugs will continue to wage war for their very survival but it will be up to our larger brain capacities to develop ways to win the fight. Pest Control
